Resum
Bacteria that grow in complex biofilm communities embedded in a self-produced extracellular polymeric matrix are a global health concern. When these microorganisms colonize indwelling medical devices they cooperate through a quorum sensing mechanism and form well-established biofilms that resist antibiotic treatments and cause difficult to treat infections. Despite the recent advances in antimicrobial research, efficient antibiofilm strategies for control of bacteria adhesion and proliferation o...
